To me, knowing whether something is right or wrong is not enough; I like to know why for myself, and so I can explain it to others when asked.
Some things I do and believe now about training are polar opposites of what I was doing a few years back. I've always been that way though. I also grew up a christian and am now a steadfast atheist. I believe in always learning and never being afraid to find out new things, even if they go against what I think at the moment.
As for meal timing, that just seems logical to me. My entire diet is based of off it. Intense training makes your body process things differently. That's accepted science, and to toss it aside is to limit your potential IMO.
